Owner description: Crayola Experience, located in the heart of downtown Easton, Pennsylvania, is the only place in the world where the magic of Crayola comes to life. Here, you’re always encouraged to let your creativity run free, to color outside the lines and to play, explore, and learn. This one-of-a-kind attraction is where color, chemistry, and technology magically combine to create a colorful adventure for a child’s imagination.

“Creativity Time for Kids and Adults”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

I went on two occasions with my grandchildren, ages 5 & 6. The fun started when we parked the car and looked over at the exterior of the building. Crayon characters are depicted in almost "life-like" images--painting the building, hanging wrappers on a line from a window, etc. Inside there are many different activities that engage on many levels. We particularly enjoyed drawing on computer screens and having our original art digitally displayed in an underwater scene on the wall, making funny body contortions that were mirrored by digital crayon characters, creating a coloring page of US! The grandkids loved creating their personalized crayons and markers, finding their way through the giant play towers, painting with melted crayons, and--yes--even sitting quietly to color. Crayola has truly created a gem of an experience for families. There is even interesting history of Crayola for we adults who enjoy that sort of thing. The only downside was that in the middle of the day the noise level gets to a high pitch, with over-stimulated, shrieking children everywhere. I recommend either getting there at opening or coming in the afternoon and being last to leave. I also recommend going to the gift shop and letting your child fill a metal crayon box with their own choice of colors--that's a great souvenir of the day!

“Lots of fun, but could be more organized”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We went on a Friday morning in September, and had no crowd issues at all (although I definitely can see how it could get overrun).
Our artsy girls had a ton of fun. For once, our 2 year old and 6 year old were entertained equally - I was almost afraid to leave (that's MAGIC). My husband and I, who also love to draw, got into it as well.
More signage would have been helpful - we somehow missed an entire half of the second floor the first time and had to go back. We weren't sure what to do at the Make a Label section until we did a lap and figured it out. It seems that it is set up to be busier and have a staff person manning each station, but there weren't when we were there.
Judging by the first activities we came to on the second floor - the Make a Label, Marker Maker, and Modeling Clay, I assumed we would need a token for the rest of the activities as well, and we had 2 children (and only received 9 tokens with our tickets). My husband quickly bought more at the machine, and as it turns out, we didn't need them, most of the other activities required no tickets.
In the end, we got a ton of fun souvenirs and had a great time!

“Color it Wondeful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

If you have young (11& younger) they will LOVE this place. There are many crafts they can do such as making a crayon with their name on it and coloring characters that "come to life" on the wall. It is also great for older folks who just love to color! If you stop & there's a "coloring fiend" in your party, be sure to stop by the "fill a tin" wall where they can get exactly the colors they want in their tin, even if that means more blue than anything else! Lots of great Crayola gifts including T-shirts, pens, plush toys, jewelry, etc. The parking lot is across the street, and it costs to park, but it's well worth it. Something here for everyone. Don't miss it!

“better for kids, obviously - but they do have a GIANT crayon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

As factory experiences go, this one is ok, If you have kids, or a group of scouts, or other child reason to go, there is lots to do.
As an adult, the GIANT crayon and watching how they make the crayons (and getting to keep one!) was the best.
Wish I would have shared it with a little one, though.
